ObamaCare eats Kentucky | RedState

Math Not Allowed In McDonald's New "Dollar Menu" | Zero Hedge

Math Not Allowed In McDonald's New "Dollar Menu" | Zero Hedge: As fast-food workers of the world unite under a common banner of "higher minimum 'livabale' wages", one can't help but reflect on the terrible jobs data this morning and the potential inability of workers to get anything but a low-skill 'part-time' job flipping burgers. But most importantly, these workers may soon not be able to afford the product they manufacture. Concerns over rising wage costs can be put aside for now as it is the soaring costs of beef (as we discussed here previously) that are causing "Dollar Menu" items to be adjusted upwards. "You can't sell a burger for $1 anymore because the cost of beef has gone up so much," and sure enough, as Bloomberg reports, McDonalds is testing a new version, dubbed 'Dollar Menu and More', that includes items selling for as much as $5. As one analyst notes, the industry's "definition of value has moved up from the Dollar Menu to $1.50 or $2.”

Was Mitt Romney Right About Everything

Was Mitt Romney Right About Everything: Ten months after Mitt Romney shuffled off the national stage in defeat — consigned, many predicted, to a fate of instant irrelevance and permanent obscurity — Republicans are suddenly celebrating the presidential also-ran as a political prophet.

From his widely mocked warnings about a hostile Russia to his adamant opposition to the increasingly unpopular implementation of Obamacare, the ex-candidate’s canon of campaign rhetoric now offers cause for vindication — and remorse — to Romney’s friends, supporters, and former advisers.

“I think about the campaign every single day, and what a shame it is who we have in the White House,” said Spencer Zwick, who worked as Romney’s finance director and is a close friend to his family. “I look at things happening and I say, you know what? Mitt was actually right when he talked about Russia, and he was actually right when he talked about how hard it was going to be to implement Obamacare, and he was actually right when he talked about the economy. I think there are a lot of everyday Americans who are now feeling the effects of what [Romney] said was going to happen, unfortunately.”

90,473,000: Record Number Not in Labor Force--Up Almost 10M Under Obama | CNS News Mobile

90,473,000: Record Number Not in Labor Force--Up Almost 10M Under Obama | CNS News Mobile: In July, according to BLS, 89,957,000 Americans did not participate in the labor force. In August, that climbed to 90,473,000--a one month increase of 516,000.

In January 2009, when President Barack Obama took office, there were 80,507,000 Americans not in the labor force. Thus, the number of Americans not in the labor force has increased by 9,966,000 during Obama's presidency.

Part of the increase in the number Americans not participating in the labor force can be explained by Baby Boomers reaching retirement age and deciding to stop working--and not be replaced by an equal number of younger people reaching age 16 and thus becoming part of the BLS labor force population.

However, it is also true that the overall percentage of the non-institutionalized population over the age of 16 that is working or seeking to work in the United States--which BLS calls the employment-population ratio--has declined significantly in recent years.

From July to August, it dropped from 58.7 percent to 58.6 percent. In January 2009, when President Barack Obama took office, it was 60.6 percent. It reached an historical peak in April 2000, when it was 64.7 percent.

Is Alexei Navalny Russia's Ron Paul? - Reason.com: Imagine former Congressman Ron Paul challenging New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg for one of the most powerful positions in the country. Then, throw in political trickery, media blackouts, office raids, and detentions. The analogy is imperfect, but it may be the closest way to understand one of the world's most important elections happening this year. The election is for the Mayor of Moscow and it takes place this Sunday. Its outcome will help gauge the future of freedom in the world's largest country, a significant issue both nationally and internationally.

Binders full of women - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: During the second U.S. presidential debate of 2012, Mitt Romney used the phrase "binders full of women" in response to a question about pay equity, referring to binders with resumes of women submitted to him as Governor of Massachusetts.

Wake up Black America: The failure of Detroit: Liberalism's Ground Zero Part 2: The left can live in their dream world and blame Detroit's bankruptcy on the auto industry, but that excuse simply doesn't cut reality.Many major cities across the nation are suffering population decline. Nobody who can afford it wants to live in a drug infested war zone. A family looking for a house isn't going to ask a realtor to find them an area that has high taxes with a bad school system and that has high crime. The reason why it's being said that liberalism destroyed Detroit is, because it did.
